Activity monitor will not let me look at things on only one server

I have 4 SQL servers in my company. I can launch Activity Monitor locally from my desktop and connect to 3 of the 4. When I remote on to the problem server, I am unable to launch Activity Monitor that way, either. Now, I have checked all permissions (local and SQL). Nothing changed, but this started happening just yesterday. Any help would be appreciated.

You need the necessary permissions to connect to the Windows Server which are required for WMI.

Sorry to baldly contradict you, but obviously something has changed. Check the WMI on the problem box: check out Microsoft links here and here for info on how to do it. Also google this phrase: "check health of WMI" for more suggestions.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Issue was with the WMI service - specifically the IP Helper dependent service. It wouldn't allow anyone to connect via Activity monitor. Not sure why IP Helper specifically, but that's what I was able to narrow it down to. Once the server was rebooted, the issue was resolved. Thanks to everyone for their comments.
